thought they could win them or they would not have spent the time and energy and money to put him on the ballot. but because of the coalition, what you saw was fair-minded legislators standing up, countering what they were saying, and that's something we haven't seen has aggressively in the past. they are also simply losing support. this is much more exciting, with brian brown, who runs the organization -- the national organization for marriage. and he talks about how they were outspent this time. they have seen their support true. they are not going to go away. i agree with patrick, i think they could come back in a forceful way. but they have seen their support shrink and their grassroots support shrink and they have seen their donor base train. the mormon church as a player he did not see in this campaign. they were the dominant player and you also saw a a lot of the individual donors on that side, where is on the pro-quality side, you saw fair-minded people across the board standing up and campaigning for these initiatives on our side, and also digging deep in writing big checks.

time, energy and talent spent on this can pain. voters across america take as much a six-hour susana nights ago. at the end of this, with the same president compassing house majority leader and the same senate leader. what is that going to mean in terms of policy as it moves forward here washington? >> i'm going to go back again. as i handed him the the fact we've had the same majority leader, i'm very glad we do. harry reid is a great leader. but the fact is still the majority leader does not mean there hasn't been a change. the make of those who people are is about the life experience. it's about what they bring to the table. the fact that the state of new hampshire, for example, we now have a woman governor. with two women senators, when democrat among the public republican coming out how to win a democratic members of congress. new hampshire is a pioneer in our politics in many ways, but we all know they will not cast the first vote and maybe they're going to be a pioneer in this kind of representation. i want to go back for a moment, jennifer. after thinking about this, i

remain clearheaded. we must be innovative in our thinking and maintaining energy. we must always put people above. we must work hard and preserve the integrity. these characteristics hold great promise for the future and a success intends is contingent of young people, the whole party should care about our young people and learn about what they have in mind and encourage their growth and support them. young people should respond to the parties outlook on life and sense of values and always cherish our country and our great nation.

energy that we are putting around marriage equality issue. >> this is an important question. issues of employment discrimination are critically important. even things like health care disparity, if you will, the reality of where lbgt people are, it is not quite clear and it doesn't bubble up to what is being talked about right now. because marriage equality had been at the forefront. and i do think in some ways, it is why the national gays and lesbians have spent so much time trying to broaden this to make sure that transgendered people in those issues are included in all the work that we do. it is widely thought very hard to make sure that gender identity is included in the employment nondiscrimination act. because we could go the other way with incremental progress with his progress. but we would've left out a whole swath of the community. folks who have greater experiences of discrimination, violence is still an issue. we forget that people are still being violently attacked because of who they are and because of who they love. i think a lot of people, in many of our communities acr

tax reform and we could have energy legislation. but we haven't even had a defense bill or cybersecurity. joe lieberman is still trying to get a cybersecurity bill, which is really important in this country. but the president -- he is our leader. he needs to engage more than we have somebody here in the room that can talk to him. i am an incurable optimist. >> i share trent's optimism. we can't adopt the total bipartisan balanced budget agreement, but we can get started. we can have a real down payment, elise to cover the first year of what otherwise would be this cluster, which is $110 billion. and i think we can do some tax reform and some entitlement reform and pull it together. and then we can adopt a process that tries to push committees of the regular order to come out with enough savings and spending and enough new revenue as part of tax reform and long-term entitlement reform -- were not thought possible to do this and this lame-duck session -- one quick point. i usually watch fox news sunday, but i sometimes watch "meet the press." chuck schumer and tom coburn were

the comprehensive energy policy so i am much more optimistic. you mention hubert humphrey and i have my doubts. >> the president has just given a press conference sounding feisty on the issue of taxes. he seemed to be saying he was given a mandate by the american people not to continue with tax cuts. with mitt romney in this campaign will that hold up with the budget negotiations? >> i want to bring the debt down. people making over to reduce $50,000 per year would be taxed at the bush level then at the clinton level it saves about $700 billion. that is why we're so interested in that proposal. i see it is the way to bring in the money. one way is spending cuts and it has to be a shared sacrifice. if it was a small amount of money or just about the election it brings of big chunk of change to bring fed that down with the subsidies that can be cut. i believe the biofuels and those breaks have gone away. oil is $40 billion. we are proud of the oil drilling with the natural gas extraction we still need the subsidy. together that is $100 billion in 10 years. there is a rational reason we
